He went to first base. Then, once the inning ended, Phillies manager Gabe Kapler removed Harper from the contest.

Harper was replaced in the contest by Sean Rodriguez. Upon being removed from the game, he had X-Rays on the hand.

The Phillies announced that Harper suffered a right hand contusion. He should be listed as day-to-day.
